"Look Homeward, Angel" is an elaborate and moving

coming-of-age story about Eugene Gant, a restless and

energetic character whose passion to experience life takes him

from his small, rural hometown in North Carolina to

Harvard University and the city of Boston. The novel's

pattern is artfully simple -- a small town, a large family,

high school and college -- yet the characters are

monumental in their graphic individuality

and personality.

Through his rich, ornate prose, Wolfe evokes the

extraordinarily vivid family of the Gants, and with

equal detail, the remarkable peculiarities of small-town

life and the pain and upheaval of a boy who must leave

both. A classic work of American literature, Look

Homeward, Angel is a passionate, stirring, and

unforgettable novel.
